Chrysostom, Against the Jews homily 2 (missing part) is now in English!

Roger Pearse has given the world a wonderful gift:

Ever since the eight sermons against the Jews by the 4th century writer John Chrysostom were published, men have noticed that sermon 2 is only a third of the length of the others, and speculated that some of it is missing.  The missing portion was discovered in a manuscript on Lesbos a decade ago and published, but no English translation has ever been made of it.

One now exists, and it is here.  I commissioned it and own the copyright, but I make the translation public domain.  Do whatever you like with it, personal, educational or commercial.

Now to communicate with the owners of copies of the Eight Sermons online, and try to persuade them to host the missing chunk as well!

  1. Thank you very much for the kind words and the notice! The more people know of this, the more copies will get patched and the less likely it is that Chrysostom will pass into the future incomplete. There: we’re doing our bit to transmit stuff to those who come after, anyway!
